Everybody was going kettlebell crazy last week, and our Training Academy Manager, Mark Laws, clocked up some miles delivering Kettlebell certifications at both ends of the country.
Firstly Mark travelled north to Durham where he taught a large group from East Durham College. This was a mixed ability group ranging from newly qualified Personal Trainers to some who have been working at the venue for over 20 years.
Deputy Sports Centre Manager, Leanne Tinkler, said "The course was very well organised and structured throughout the day. None of us had had much previous kettlebell experience, if any at all, however now we all feel confident with the exercises we were shown and confident to take what we have learnt and put it into practise in a kettlebell class. The instructor was very knowledgeable and I was happy with the delivery of the course. I would definitely recommend the course/company to anyone looking to do a kettlebell course."
The following day and Mark was a little closer to home, delivering the same course at a small boutique studio in Dereham (Norfolk) belonging to Paul Jewiss of the 'Paul Jewiss Group'. It may have been a smaller group but that just meant there was more time for everybody to do some extra practical work!!! Paul has been a member of the industry for over 20 years and has had the honour of working with Formula 1 racing drivers, Premier League Footballers and a huge number of World Champions in many other sports. After the course he said "Thanks for a really great day. One of the best courses I have been on in over 20 years in the game - thoroughly recommendable to anyone no matter how long they have been in the industry"
Mark was delighted with how both days went, "Both of these courses were a great success and show the versatility of our courses - catering for huge venues with packed timetables and also small private studios, plus anyone from newly qualified instructors to 20 year veterans have been benefiting from our education. Its great to meet so many people from the industry and to be able to help with their development. The next few months are going to be really exciting for us as we look to develop the Training Academy more and more, bringing more courses to more people".
